Inspired from the Director's grandfathers experience and his love for magic.

 

Synopsis:

After seeing his family fail time after time at getting any type of response from his Alzheimer-diagnosed grandfather, Rene, an innocent teen, discovers an empty packet of old playing cards which leads him on a journey deep into the world of magic. 

 

After being surrounded by talented, world class magicians, he believes magic tricks are the answer to getting his grandfather "back". Although, Rene must discover a way to bypass the magicians code to learn how a certain magic trick is done before it's too late.
